Versatile Solvent-based epoxy primer
Vetoprime EP490 is a universal primer for the Vetorep and Vetotop Coatings product range. It is applied on prepared concrete and cementitious substrates to seal the substrate enhance bonding with topcoats. The product can be used as a stand-alone product in internal applications as a seal coat to harden cementitious surfaces and prevent dusting. Vetoprime EP490 is a two-component solvent-based epoxy resin that has penetrating properties making it ideal for concrete substrates.
Vetoprime EP490 is supplied in a 4 & 15 Liters kit.
Coverage: 7 - 10 m2/Liter.
Stated consumption data are for general guidance. Actual consumption depends on the nature of the substrate, method of application, and wastage.
The original Vetoprime EP490 sealed container has a shelf life of 12 months, provided it is stored clear of ground in a dry, shaded place below 35ºC.
Mix Vetoprime EP490 as supplied. Add the entire content of the hardener container to the base container and mix thoroughly for about 2 minutes. Once mixed, apply Vetoprime EP490 immediately in a thin continuous film using stiff brushes or rollers. Avoid over-application and puddles.
Allow Vetoprime EP490 to become tack-free before applying the epoxy coating (unless otherwise specified) but well within the open time specified for the given temperature.
The hotter the substrate, the more quickly the primer will become dry.
Clean all tools and equipment immediately after use with Vetonit Solvent XX400.
Vetoprime EP490 must be applied to a sound, clean and dry surface to achieve maximum bond strength between substrate and coating/repair products.
It should be at least 28 days old, and the relative humidity of the concrete is 75% or below. Laitance deposits on new concrete are best removed by light grit blasting, mechanical scrabbling, or grinding.
Where heavy contamination by oil and grease has occurred or existing coatings are present, remove all contaminations.
At temperatures below 20ºC, the cure rate will be slower. Conversely, at temperatures above 20ºC, the cure rate will be faster.
Some people are sensitive to epoxy resins, so gloves and a barrier cream shall be used when handling these products. If contact with the resin occurs, it must be removed before it hardens, with resin removing cream follow by washing with soap and water. Do not use solvent.
During use, avoid inhalation of solvent and contact with skin and eyes. Wear suitable protective clothing, gloves, eye protection, and respiratory protective equipment. In case of contact with the eye, rinse immediately with plenty of clean water and seek medical advice. If swallowed, seek medical attention immediately – do not induce vomiting.
Vetoprime EP490 is flammable. Ensure adequate ventilation. Do not smoke or use near a naked flame.
